Forgot your EMC Box’s IP address :(


If you have just realize that you are no longer remember the IP address of your old EMC storage box and your documents are of no use because you hadn't recorded your storage configuration, then you may be wondering that your next few hours going to be very painful and frustrating.
Well this is true if you connect to MGMT port and start trying out different combinations to identify your IP address and make some phone calls to your peers to find out whether they remember any IP address. But please don’t stress yourself as EMC has a very cool feature to help you in this regard. I don’t know this feature until very recently I used it.




For this purpose you need an EMC original service cable, will be connecting to the wrench port of your box and the other end can be connected to a USB-Serial adapter. Now connect the adapter to your USB port. Now follow these steps.




Make a PPP connection from the Windows XP machine.

    a)  Select Programs > Accessories > Communications > New Connection Wizard.
    b)  Press Next > Set up an advanced connection > Connect directly to another computer > Select Guest and put a name for the connection.
    c)  Select a device:  Communications Port (COMx) > Anyone use > Add a shortcut > Finish.
    d)  Go to Settings > Network Connections > Click on the PPP connection name [e.g., spa_vnx5300].
    e)  Select the "Configure" button > Select 115200 baud and ensure Enable hardware flow control is enabled.
    f)  Use Networking tab > highlight TCP/IP > Properties > Advanced > Click "Use default gateway on remote network" and uncheck PPP link box.
     Open the connection and use clariion clariion! for connection credentials.
    Registering your computer on the network.
    Note:  The Host Windows computer uses a PPP IP address of 192.168.1.2.

    Once connected, you can:

    a) Connect with your browser to 192.168.1.1/setup to access the setup page.  

Bingo, you just identified your SP’s IP address. Now it is a good time to write it down. J
